What a blast.  I went to a scrap booking camp in the weekend just gone and I was very happy to meet one of my fellow colleagues who is a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator. Her Name is Tee-Jayand she is just one of the nicest lady that I have met. She lives in the grand metropolis of Wanganui (or should that be Whanganui), so all of you that have met Tee-Jay, you would agree how nice she is.

Any way, why am I going on about Tee-Jay? Well she was a good demonstrator and had some of the hostess sets that we could order before tomorrow as demonstrators, and I was allowed to play!!!! It is always great to be around similar minded people who enjoy card making and scrap booking, as much as I do.

Any way here are some of the things that were created with my new friends stamp sets.


  These first two are made with the “A Good Egg” Set which I think are just adorable.


The next one is made with the “Window Dressing” Hostess set which has a large amount of stamps to work with. Fantastic!!! This is with the new in color of “Kiwi Kiss”


And this one I was just playing with the “Chocolate Chip” card stock and the “Say it with Scallops” Set, with the “So Swirly” roller in the background. I thought it was quite cute.


Last but definitely not least, this is a card that my new friend Tee-Jay made for me. What else is great is not only are we both demonstrators, but we are both in Jacque’s team. How great is that!!


Isn’t it cool!!! This is made with the “Fresh Cut Notes” that come pre-punched. Neat ah!!!

Well as you can imagine, scrap camp was a lot of fun. How could it not be with 32 woman there all doing what we love.

Here is a little ditty!!!

Well I just wanted to show you this little card that I made, with I think is my most favourite Stampin’ Up! set so far!!! The Baroque Motifs.

It makes all that you do  look so elegant, and I must admit that I have used it on a lot of projects, from scrapbooking pages, to off the page projects, birthday invitations, and of course…cards.


As you can see I also managed to use the circle and circle scallop punches along with some bling brads which just finish off those projects of ours, ever so nicely.

    Hello to all of the readers that come to this, the newest blog in town. My name is Adele Quinn and I am ready to launch Stampin’ Up!® to Palmerston North.

    If you are one of the many people around that enjoys scrapbooking, savouring all of those memories that we want to keep close to our hearts or making a personalized card  just perfect for those many occasions that we are faced with these days or creating your own special gift boxes for those treats that we all enjoy creating for friends and family then Stampin’ Up! could be your new best friend.

    I have found that the products that Stampin’ Up! have to offer are not only of great quality but they also have a beautiful range of stamps, cardstock and punches that all work in together.

    Below I have added a couple of things that I made with a good friend of mine over the weekend, that show the versatility of these products.


This card was made as a get well card using ‘green olive’ and ‘whisper white’ card stock, the ‘scribble jumbo wheel stamp’, inked in basic black. The ‘Thinking of you’ stamp from the ‘Greeting Galore’ set, inked in ‘close to cocoa’ filled in using ‘Stampin’ pastels’ with a blender pen. Finished off with ‘whisper white’ and ‘chocolate chip’ taffeta ribbon along the bottom of the card.


This next card was made with ‘certainly celery’ and ‘very vanilla’ card stock. Stamped with the frame from one of the stamps from the ‘Yummy’ set in ‘Basic black ‘ ink, the ‘celebrate’ stamp from the ‘Sweet Serendipity’ set in ‘old olive’ and ‘basic black’ stampin’ write markers, and the ‘Baroque Border’ ‘stampin’ wheel’ stamp in ‘purely pomegranate’. Then embellished with ‘purely pomegranate’ double stitched ribbon, and three ‘sahara sand’ eyelets.

As you may be able to tell I am new to all of this; so please forgive me if I do not have it sorted all at once.

I look forward to many visitors here in the future and hope you enjoy coming along for the ride alongside me.
